From the Paper:

''Michael G. Roberts, partner with the law firm Venable LLP., submitted testimony on behalf of Crowley Maritime Corporation (Crowley), that Crowley ranks as one of the leading shipping companies based in the United States (Rebuilding Vessels..., 2008). Crowley, reportedly also leads the ocean cargo carrier business, operating between the United States and Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, Bahamas, Central America, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba (Crowley 2003). As Crowley operates its fleet that exceeds 200 vessels on all the world's coasts, it provides a diverse array of services in U.S. domestic and international maritime markets. The myriad of services Crowley provides include "container shipping in domestic and Latin American trades; petroleum and chemical transportation services; logistics; ship assist and vessel escort services; ocean towing and transportation; marine salvage and emergency response; and other activities" (Rebuilding Vessels..., 2008, p.1). CMC's addition of two new, bigger, faster container ships, the Eclips and Ocean, enhances Crowley services relating to the Caribbean islands. As these ships replace two older models, they offer approximately 200 more TEUs of capacity, along with double the number of reefer plugs the ships they are replacing, the Sea Gale and Sea Cloud, possessed. They run approximately 18.5 knots; bout two knots faster than the older models (Crowley introduces..., 2007, p.1).''
